It’s been an eventful week in Evie-land. My dear friend Virginia is in town and, as a baby gift, put her professional photography skills to work capturing the cuteness that is Evie. We’ll get the pictures in a few weeks. The whole ordeal, though, was apparently pretty hard on the P (that’s what we call her most of the time these days):
Another interesting development in the past few days is that we’ve discovered that Evie likes the guitar. She’ll lay on her changing table and watch me play for quite a while, and gets really excited and smiley:
When not rockin’ out, Evie is helping her mom with our tradition of making a Christmas gumbo. We’ve decided to film/photograph Evie and her mom working on the roux every year. Here is this year’s edition:
All of this, of course, led to Evie’s first Christmas, which also fell on her two-month birthday. What did she think of all that? Apparently, she was a roller-coaster of emotions:
She also got to listen to lots of Christmas music, with mixed results:
She also spent the day – and the days leading up to it – being her regular adorable self:
All of this is to say, it’s been a busy week for the baby. So, without further ado, Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
